Health Systems Strengthening
Strategies and policy approaches to critical Health areas in strengthening Health Systems need to be in tandem with well researched positions. Such areas include:
- Health Financing
- User fees
- Medical Insurance
- Drug supply chains
- Manufacturing outfits
- Medical training
- Donor participation and role
- Disease burden
- Human resources for Health
We need affordable, sustainable quality Health systems!
Prevention is cornerstone to Primary Health Care approach.
Prevention of HIV and Aids, Cancer and Communicable diseases
Water and sanitation
Child Welfare issues etc
These are important issues.
CHEST will seek strategic approaches with stakeholders.
Policies of Integration
This is a critical area needing policy analysis.
Verticalizing diseases like HIV and AIDS including male circumcision may be less cost-effective than integrating these into mainstream health delivery systems.
Gender needs to be mainstreamed into health programming.
CHEST will be fully engaged with these issues.
